Among st all of the wedding planning, I think finding a trustworthy and flexible hair and makeup artist is one of the hardest and most important items to find! After all, their work is what will live in ALL of your photos, videos, and family and friends memories! I found Mayra through Thumbtack at Make it Happen! From the start, Mayra was awesome. Very prompt to respond to questions, gave advice on ideas, and super accommodating to the changing # of women needing services. Her and Lluvia (hair) graciously were able to fit in one of my bridesmaids who initially did not want services until the day of and also my mom. What a relief! The trial was also a blast. We got to experiment with different ideas and also get to know their style. They are both so friendly, fun to be around, educational, and professional. I think the most impressive thing about both Mayra and Lluvia is their attention to detail. Mayra truly makes a canvas out of your face and applies makeup so diligently and meticulously. She blends the perfect shades for your complexion and genuinely considers what you like and do not like. She is also very inquisitive about what you like and do not like so she clearly understands what and how to apply your vision. Often times you show hair and makeup artists a pic and they can rarely match it - in this case they both matched the elements of the pics I was after that best fit my look and style. Every single one of my guests was blown away at their work and many of my engaged friends are now asking for their services. I am so thrilled for our pics!! Thanks again Mayra!
Rose was absolutely amazing! She did my wedding hair and makeup and did a fabulous job! She listened to and adjusted for my tastes and did an absolutely beautiful job. For my makeup she gave me amazing fake lashes that looks great and not overly fake. For my hair she put in extensions and did a great job creating a loose wave curl that lasted all night. I can't recommend Rose highly enough. She was also a blast to have around on the morning of my wedding.
Chantelle's team was great, and everything worked out perfectly for my wedding hair and makeup. Chantelle organized stylists to do the hair and makeup for me, my mom, and my bridesmaids on my wedding day. The stylists, Reese and Shannon, were amazing and I was thrilled with them! I completely recommend them!
I had a very great experience having my makeup done. MUA was on time, professional and create a beautiful look in a timely manner. Anne arrived at my house with a complete makeup setup including pro chair. She took a moment to setup a very sanity workstation. Before getting started we chatted a little about my plans for the evening like what type of event I would be attending and asked if she could see my outfit. She told me she had a good look I’m mind for me and she did not disappoint. We talked and shared a little bit about ourselves as she worked on me and before I know it the look was complete. I was very satisfied and will hire Anne again for my upcoming summer events. She is a sweetheart with a warm spirit.
Vinnia was fantastic!!! I couldn't have been happier with my wedding hair and makeup. All of my communication with Vinnia was done through email since I live out of the country. She was amazing at suggesting ideas for my hair and makeup. She was always very prompt with replying to my emails. I wasn't sure what to do with my hair since I was growing it out and I had only had my makeup professionally done once before. I showed Vinnia a picture of how I wanted my hair and she styled it turned out even better than I imagined. I had so many compliments on it! My makeup was beautiful too. Vinnia kept checking to make sure that I was happy and anything I wanted changed wasn't a problem at all. All of my bridesmaids and my mother had their hair and makeup done too. Vinnia and her assistant arrived on time and had all of us done within the time frame she provided. There was no rushing around, it was very relaxed and pampering. My makeup and hair lasted all night long! I highly recommend Vinnia as a professional, experienced, and high quality makeup artist and hair stylist.
Liv came to my rescue when I found out my makeup artist/hair doesn’t do my engagement trial during weekend. Not only she was available but she gave me such a great affordable price for trial and wedding. She also gave us discount for eye lashes! I knew she didn’t have to do that. She always responsive when I have questions. She listens to my ideas/wants. She doesn’t pressure me with anything. She has a fun personable personality which is easy to talk to and get along with. I definitely will recommend her to people and will hire for future special occasions.
Cassandra does a phenomenal job at styling hair as well as makeup. I've gotten a handful of beautiful photos from working with her, and would always love to work with her again. She's definitely worth working with.
I highly recommend Tonia. She did my makeup and hair as well as my two young daughters' hair for family photos. We were all very happy with the results! She is very friendly, patient and professional. Even before we met in person, she was very responsive over email in responding to my questions. The day of Tonia listened to what I wanted and made sure she gave my girls and me the hair styles and make-up style (for me) that we wanted, even if it meant taking more time to do so. I also was impressed that she has experience with young women and "older" women like myself who are moms and no longer in their 20's! And she was great with my two young girls ages 5 &7. Her rates are very reasonable compared to other artists' rates that I researched and she arrived on time and finished on time too. We would definitely book with her again and I would gladly refer her to my friends! Thank you so much Tonia!!! :) :)
Jaime did my makeup for prom and I could not have asked for a better makeup artist. She made me feel so comfortable and did a great job. I was so happy with the look that she gave me!
Farrah came to our home to do some very natural hair and makeup for myself, my sister and my mother before a family photo shoot. She did an amazing job! She was quick, but thorough and listened to what we wanted. I would hire her again for sure!
Amy is absolutely incredible!! Not only is her work amazing, she makes you feel so comfortable and really cares about her clients. She is very flexible and easy to work with. Living in Denver, I only had a short amount of time that I would be in California for the wedding, and she worked with my schedule to make sure I got a trial before the day of my wedding. On the day of the wedding, she was on time and she made sure she had plenty of time to get everyone's makeup done so we were ready on time! On top of that, she was very reasonably priced and worked within my budget. She also found me a hair stylist that fit in my budget as well! All of my bridesmaids, my mom, and myself loved our makeup and it lasted all night. Her makeup is beautiful and I got so many compliments on it. I would definitely recommend hiring Amy as she is definitely one of the best makeup artists I have ever hired!
Audra was wonderful to work with for my small backyard wedding and she was a delight to have present on my wedding day! Such a kind and welcoming personality and very professional. She did both hair and makeup for myself and my two bridesmaids and all three looks were beautiful. I wanted a more natural look and she listened to all my requests and delivered exactly what I wanted. Very punctual and arrived on time for both the makeup trial and day of wedding services. Easy to communicate with and set up appointments. I highly recommend her!
it was my first time using thumbtack. I was looking for an in home to do my hair and make-up for prom. Jelise was very nice to set up my appointment right away. She did my hair and make-up and everyone at my prom said i looked beautiful. they really loved my hair and make up and they asked me who i got it from. i recommended them to Jelise if ever they need a make up/hair artist for a formal event, Jelise was very friendly and will do what yu want her to. Thanks Jelise (:
I don't like to wear makeup in a regular days but I had an event to go with my husband and Lisa did my makeup. I asked her that I want as much natural as possible and light and I end up with great comments in that night! I recommend to anyone that is looking for a professional makeup artist! She is great!
I am in love with Jasmene's artwork! She is incredibly amazing when it comes to makeup! She is soo good! She's my to go to makeup artist whenever I need her! She's the best!
Alexaly is amazing. She was capture my makeup vision for my big day with ease. I don’t normally wear a full face makeup but she explained to me what she was doing and showed me make up colors that I could work with. I’m so happy I went with Alexaly and highly recommend her
Mari was absolutely amazing. She did makeup and hair for myself and all of my bridesmaids and my mom about a month ago for my wedding. She was punctual, thoughtful about the time, did incredible work, and was super fun! Everyone looked absolutely stunning. I will definitely be recommending her to my friends and family for other events.
I could not be more pleased with Sam's work! She made me feel so beautiful on my wedding day. She did my makeup and hair - they both held up the whole day and I got so many compliments:) she was professional and a great person to have with me during the 1st part of my big day!
Hazel was recommended to me by a friend. I don’t wear makeup often and so I had a lot of questions. She was super sweet and we talked about the style of hair/makeup done for my work event—she even responded to my questions while she was away on vacation! Hazel was responsive to my suggestions and I found the fact that she wanted to prep for the appointment refreshing. She is the upmost professional and made me feel so comfortable in my skin. The makeup lasted the whole event—it even lasted an hour walk in balmy weather. I wouldn’t think twice to book her again.
Kayla did my hair and makeup for my engagement pictures.... twice. The first time it rained so the pictures were cancelled, but I loved her so much I went back to her a second time. She actually came to my house at 5am to get me ready for a sunrise photo shoot. She was so professional, knowledgeable, so sweet and friendly, so detailed, going above and beyond to exceed my expectations and make sure I loved how everything came out and I absolutely did! She does amazing work and is such a genuinely good human being, I am so grateful to her and I look awesome in my pictures thanks to her.
